Invaluable! Allen P. Young's Accordance 25 Story

Accordance 25 image no background I first discovered Accordance in 1998 as a student at Talbot School of Theology. I hadn’t started my language studies, but Dr. Clinton Arnold (then current Dean) suggested Bible software compatible with the Mac platform from The Gramcord Institute directed by Dr. Paul Miller. During those early years I eventually upgraded to the Scholar 4 version. On August 25, 2005, I moved under the Accordance banner with Scholar 6.4.

Over the years, I have added modules that have aided me in ministry. Accordance is invaluable for sermon and teaching preparation, personal Bible study, and biblical research.

I always look forward to the weekly newsletter with its specials. Currently I am using Accordance 12.3.4. I have had the opportunity to attend several seminars at Talbot (2005, 2007) and at ETS. I love the Accordance podcast, “Lighting the Lamp,” with Dr. J., as well as the free webinars. I appreciate that the Accordance team shares their wisdom on how to more effectively use Accordance in ministry. The Devotional feature in Accordance has encouraged me read through the Scriptures annually.
